”In cases where settlements are possible, [CLL's] lawyers will always foster settlement. However, in cases where they have to litigate hard, they do. Moreover, the time given to each matter is ample despite their busy schedules. I’ve always found that they make clients feel special and, often, the feeling is that my matter is the only matter they are handling because of the constant care given to it. This is rare in law firm partners.”2022 The Legal 500
